Rohit Sharma Controversies

In the 2015 World Cup quarter-final match between India and Bangladesh, when Rubel Hossain took the wicket of Rohit Sharma, Pakistan’s umpire Aleem Dar adjudged Rubel’s full-toss as waist-high ‘no-ball’. However, TV replays showed a real touch-and-go situation that could have gone either way. The next day, ICC president Mustafa Kamal criticized “poor umpiring.” ICC, however, claimed that it was a 50-50 call, and the umpire’s decision must be respected.
